Phillies center fielder Ben Revere is the most adorable player in baseball and last night, after a 13-inning victory over the Braves, right fielder Marlon Byrd gave him a piggyback ride in from the outfield.
Here’s the tremendously adorable MLB.com video:
By the way: Revere hasn’t homered in 19 games, so he’s going through a helluva power outage.
According to former major leaguer and current broadcaster Ryan Spilborghs, Jenny Cavnar will be calling play-by-play of Monday night’s game against the Padres for the Rockies. The broadcast will be on AT&T Sportsnet Rocky Mountain Region.
Cavnar will be at least the third woman to call televised play-by-play for a major league team, joining Gayle Gardner (Rockies, 1993) and Suzyn Waldman (Yankees, mid-1990’s).
Broadcasting remains largely the domain of white men, so it’s always good when women and people of color are able to have a seat in the broadcasting booth.
